August-Drink Your Water Challenge

So we decided that since August is one of the hottest months in Texas that we would do another 25 day challenge this month to create a healthy habit….this month we will be drinking the recommended 64oz of water daily!!!! 
There are tons of great health benefits to drinking your water daily!! 
Your mother may have told you to drink more water when you were young, but you may ignored the advice. As being a logical person, you need reasons on why spending all those time to drink water. Here you go – The Ririan Project gives 10 reasons why drinking water is good for you.
  • Get Healthy Skin
  • Flush Toxins

Another GREAT TIP:  Get the 1st half (32oz) drank by 1pm and the 2nd half of it (32oz) down by 6pm and it will help with not having to get up all night long to go potty!!
So go get your August calendars printed off and hang it to remind yourself to drink that water and check it off everyday!!! (even if you don’t get all the recommended 64oz in….try to drink at least half, 32oz, and work up from there!  Just drink what you can and keep adding more. You will see great changes and feel tons better as you drink more and more water. 
Ok–so go dig out your favorite water bottle and get it ready!!!!  
Let’s do this!!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
